Tho peoplo of North Platte take
great prido in tho graduates of the city
high school, for among them aro some of
the brightest young men and women in
tho state. Among the graduates who
have steadily advanced since leaving tho
high school is Miss Bertha Thoolecke,
who is regarded as ono of tho most suc
cessful teachers in our city schools. Miss
Thcelecko easily passed tho rigid ex
amination required of teachers iu the
Omaha schools, and holds, wo believe, a
state certificate. Being therefore thor
oughly competent, in caso of nomination
and election, to hold tho oilico of county
superintendent there is renson for her
many friends all ovor tho county to feel
grieved over tho manner in which she
was treated by the gag and gang rulers
of tho lato independent convention. As
tho independents believo that nono but

-Replying to an article in the Wal
lace Horald, The Tkihunk would say
that it has no fault to find with thoso
who leave a party through principle,
but when dcsortion is mado for tho solo
purposo qf gaining a nomination for
office, it denounces such as an unprin
cipled act. Six months prior to tho in
dependent convention of 1891 Butler
Buchanan, in a talk with tho editor of
The Tkihunk, said that ho was thor
oughly convinced that it was usoless for
the republicans to put up a ticket dur
ing the fall of that year, for the indepen
dents woro going to sweep tho county.
It was duo to this belief and to a promise
that ho would be nominated for county
clerk by tho independents that ho do
sorted tho republican ranks. He was
slaughtered in the indepeddent conven
tion that fall, nnd would gladly hnvo
retraced his steps to tho republican fold
had ho the assuranco that arms were
open to receive him. But thoro were
none; ho had left tho party for tho solo
purpose of office and it had no further
uso for him. Buchanan now asks for
republican votes, but on what ground
wo do not know.
Tho North Platte Cemetery Associa
tion opened for business in 1872. It had
no assots, but bought five acres of land
on timo and platted it into cemetery
lots; subsequently it bought ten acres
moro Jind some Jots on which a sexton's
house was erected. To-day the nssets of
tho association are fifteen acres of land,
several lots with house on same and 5325
in treasury and does not owe a dollar.
Every lot owner is a member, and they
havo apparently been so well satisfied
with the management of the affairs of
the association by the officers that B. I.
Hinman has been treasurer from the
beginning, James Belton has been presi
dent and Franklin Peale secretary for
over seventeen years. But the officers
believing that in all fairness that they
should be relieved ani others take the
responsibility, therefore James Belton
resigned and T. C. Patterson was there
upon elected president, B. I. Hinman
resigned and W. H. McDonald was
elected treasurer, F. Peale resigned and
C. F. Iddings was elected secretary, nnd
a good conservative board of trustees
who no doubt will conduct the business
of the association to the entire satisfac
tion of the stockholders. There has
been a misunderstanding about reorgan
izing the association. The city has no
interest in it whatever. It belongs
absolutely to the lot owners. t j

Mr. Buchanan is very much exer

' Last January Charloy Bogue, son of
oirtold townsman W. C. Boguo, and ono
5iDr. -Kidd, of Ellsworth, Kan., were
indicted on the chargo of procuring the
death of a lady by abortion in September,
1892. Tho trial was held at Wallace,
Kan., and Judge A. H. Church, of this
city, and Judge Danforth, of Wallace,
defended Bogue and Dr. Kidd. The
trials were separate, Bogue, tho acces
sory to the alleged crime.being first tried.
Tho trial lasted somo eight days and
attracted great attention throughout
westom Kansas. Somo queer freaks on
tho part of the presiding Judge (Osborn)
were indulged in and duly excepted to
by tho defense. Ono of tho court's
peculiar ideas was that Dr. Kidd was not
permitted to testify in behalf of Bogue,
nor was Boguo allowed to testify while
Dr. Kidd was on trial; also letters writ
ten by Bogue one or two years prior to
tho alleged abortion to the young lady,
and on matters entirely foreign to tho
caso at issue, were admitted in ovidence
over, tho objection of defendants' at
torneys. No chancre of venuo was
allowed upon tho affidavits of many of
tho best meu,in Ellis county stating that
owing to tho intense excitement and
prejudice of tho peoplo, a fair trial could
not bo had, also setting out the projudico

defendants Boguo and Kidd. The trial

I had been journeying through Egypt
in company with my friend, Harry Kel-
lar, tho magician. Wo were stopping at
the quaint old town of Boolak, which is
situated on tho right bank of tho. Nile, at
the divergenco of its Pelusiac branch,
one mile northwest of the historic city
of Cairo, of which it forms a suburb.
Our host was an Egyptian grandee,
whose fine country place overlooked tho
shipping from just outside tho more
densely populated part of the town.
Ono da we were strolling down near
the landings when an old Egyptian
market woman besought tis to purchase
somo of her tamarinds, naming an ex

these tamarinds at that low figure?" ex

dressing her in her own tongue. "They

She looked surprised; so did our host.
"Yes, I was sure of it," Kellar con
tinued, nnd he broko ono of those that
ho had taken up and drew a small cop
per coin of the country from its center.
For a moment tho woman was too
startled to do more than regard tho coin
with wonder. Then, however, her nat
ural avarice asserted itself, and she
snatched tho bit away from Kollar's un
"Ah! I sec you are a fakir," our host
said smilingly as wo moved on. "It was
well done. Now I know that you and
my other esteemed friend here will more
than ordinarily enjoy tho slight diver
sion I havo to offer for your entertain
ment after coffeo today. Perhaps, too,
you may have the kcenuess though it
is not in me to explain the performance
to divine how littlo Akli can survive
the marvelous act Abalani forces him
to do, and to discover how Abalani can
perform his part of the stnuige enter
But about tho old market woman: A
servant told our host later that sho had
hurried directly to her rndo cot on our
departure, where she had carefully
opened every tamarind in her basket to
find the copper bit in its center. The
disappointment she suffered on not find
ing a single bit of money and the loss of
the spoiled fruit served her right for at
tempting to impose upon the supposed
ignorance of strangers. But Kellar was
too largo-hetrtel to allow the lesson to
be one that should mako lief thirpoorcr,
and the servant was dispatched directly
to "the old peddler's homo with more
than twico the worth of the fruit iu cop
pers. That evening Abalani, the fakir, ar
rived at our host's house.
He was a small, wiry little man, whoso
age was about 45, if yon were to judge
it from the dark, clear eyes with which
he quickly summed you up. They seemed
to pierce nie through aud through as he
made a deprecatory bow before me, his
thin arms and palms extended toward
me in the attitude of benediction.
His only garments wero a light breech
cloth of a dark red shade and a flowing
silk mantle, dark yellow in color. Tho
only ornament lie wore was a dark cop
per ring hanging from his neck by a
greasy looking piece ot leather or cord
I looked for Akli, the littlo boy with
whose assistance ho performed tho tricks

it had been done a second time, Abalani
left ns as perplexed as before.
For my part I gave the whole riddle
up. I had seen many a strango feat of
juggler, but this ono completely non
plused me. Kellar was determined not
to leave Boolak until ho had satisfied,
himself as to how the trick, or feat, had
A week passed. Our host enjoyed
Keliar's quandary keenly as a boy, and
joked him about it. However, Kellar
joined ns on tho porch ono afternoon
with a certain amused expression upon
his face that mado mo feel reasonably
sure that something interesting was np.
"I should like to see little Akli climb
just once more this afternoon," he said,
dropping into a low steamer chair with
more satisfaction than I had noticed him
evince for tho past week, "Con audi

up the shaded path, his slight figure
clothed as before in the flowing mantlo
and scanty breechcloth that dark cop

the breast it hung against, his only dec

There were the same low salaams, his
dry, hard palms that were of almost tho
whiteness of mine being stretched over

could not have been moro deferential.
But at tho same time I thought that I
detected a gleam of egotistical challenge
in his dark eyes that mado me hope Kel
lar would succeed in detecting his trick
and increased my de&iro to know how it
We moved down to tho placo in the
garden where we had witnessed the act
before, Kellar slipping into tho houso n
moment first. Littlo Akli appeared as
bright and smiling as when we had first
seen him. Tho ropo appeared, Akli had
climbed it, when I heard a slight, sharp
"click! on tho side where Kellar was
standing. When littlo Akli had clam
bered out of sight, Abalani clapped his
hands twice. We shuddered as we heard
tho sound of Akli's falling body. Tho
rope had disappeared, and the little fel
low stood there bowing before ua. The
